Description 

The Can Jorba crag has a wide variety of climbing from very short steep sport climbs to relaxed multi-multi-pitch outings to the tops of the towers which surround the valley. It had a decidedly secluded quiet feel as compared to the din and bustle of the areas around the Monastery. The area is shaded in early morning but gets full sun exposure later in the day. It should be fairly easy to find either sun or shade depending on what you want to climb. This also provides access to the "Joc del l'Oca" via ferrata at the back of the canyon.

Getting There 

Can Jorba is accessed from the El Bruc Residencial just off the A-2 just to the east of the town of El Bruc. There are a decent number of signs identifying the road to Can Jorba. Upon entering "El Bruc Residencial" take the left fork onto Ave de Can Jorba. This dead ends into Carrer Can Marques. Take an immediate left onto a dirt road that winds itself through olive orchards. Continue past the first dirt road and take the next right fork. A few hundred meters later you will arrive at a small farm with two grass parking areas to the right. The path to the climbing areas leads back to the left of a small terracotta shed/chapel.

Sol Solet 5.6 4c 14 V 12 S 4b  Europe : Spain : ... : Miranda de Can Jorba
The bottom 5 pitches of Sol Solet are well protected and have some exceptionally fun climbing at a moderate grade (5.6). The views are spectacular, the exposure is life affirming and the opportunity to cover a vast expanse of vertical ground rapidly makes this route a must do. The downside is that the last two pitches of moderate climbing are unprotected but potentially deadly. It may be possible to move over to the final pitches of Bego-Miguel-Kush in order to arrive at the summit in a less ...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
